gaffey street

Gaffey Street is the entrance to San Pedro and is its main artery, passing neighborhood restaurants and businesses as it makes its way through San Pedro to the southern tip of Los Angeles. Great Streets seeks to take advantage of existing improvements and planned investment to transform Gaffey from an entrance into a gateway, welcoming both residents and visitors to all that San Pedro offers. Great Streets will work in partnership with the Los Angeles Neighborhood Initiative and the community to finalize specific goals and improvements to make Gaffey into a destination in its own right.
